From the first weeks of pregnancy, the body of a pregnant woman adapts to the new conditions of functioning.These changes contribute to the normal course of pregnancy and fetal development.Condition in pregnant women varies by week, with each subsequent week is characterized by new sensations.Based on the analysis of a woman can be in a timely manner to prevent the emergence of possible serious complications.
Changes in the embryonic period
In most cases, at the earliest timing of a woman may not know she was pregnant, as it does not affect her health.Only the fourth week of the tests are positive, the woman receives a confirmation of the pregnancy.The change being observed due to the fact that the duration of pregnancy increases.
After six weeks may be nausea, impaired appetite, vomiting varying intensity, intolerance to some specific odors.Changing taste preferences - a woman begins to eat foods that previously did not like, or, conversely, stops eating his favorite treats as they now
These symptoms may indicate the development of early or first half of pregnancy toxemia.Overall condition in this case does not suffer.
only if the vomiting becomes indomitable, joined by marked weakness, lack of appetite, without delay is necessary to seek medical help.It requires a course of treatment in a specialized department.
8 End of the week is the final week of the embryonic period of development.During this period, all of the major systems and organs of the body are already differentiated, that is strictly determined which body will develop from a particular group of cells.A pregnant woman becomes volatile mood - from drowsiness and weakness to excessive irritability Irritability - Try to control your mood , nervousness, tearfulness.Even a slight word or expression can cause outbursts of anger.Such changes in mood and well-being are the result of the hormonal changes that occur in a woman's body due to pregnancy.Gradually, the woman's condition becomes more balanced and normalized by the end of the first trimester.
As further changes overall
After the first half of pregnancy, the body of a pregnant begins to experience increasing workload.At 20-22 weeks is often a complication associated with a reduction in blood hemoglobin (set on the basis of the result of a general analysis of the blood).A pregnant may appear complaint of fatigue, dizziness Dizziness - if the ground is slipping from under his feet , recurring headaches.This status during pregnancy requires mandatory conduct antianemic therapy (prescribing iron and comprehensive multivitamin preparations), as it can lead to complications such as the threat of termination or premature labor, the development of toxicity in the second half, and others.
During the second trimester there is a risk of toxicity, which is not only threatening complication for the fetus, but for the life of the pregnant woman.Pregnancy status changes:
- special attention should be paid to the appearance of edema, which are considered a sign of fluid retention in the body.The presence of edema should not be left unattended.The kidneys during pregnancy suffer the maximum load on the proper functioning depends directly on how the pregnancy will proceed
- amid the swelling, a change in laboratory parameters - in the analysis of urine protein may appear
- also becomes unstable blood pressure, increased pressure numbers
This triad of symptoms (swelling, presence of protein in the urine protein in the urine - a sign of danger, which should not be underestimated and high blood pressure) is a sign of complicated pregnancy, which was called preeclampsia.This condition is subject to a pregnant necessarily complex drug therapy, as from this in the future will depend on the course of pregnancy.
28 week a woman comes out of the breast colostrum.It should not frighten the woman should be some hygienic measures and be sure to cook the breasts for breastfeeding.In the period of 28 weeks in some pregnant women fainting occurs, which is due to the development of the "syndrome of the lower genital vein."Because of the large size of the pregnant uterus increases the pressure on the vein that leads to disruption of blood circulation and blood flow to the heart.It did not recommend a woman to lie on her back and on the side.
In the third trimester, the woman's condition due to the fact that there is a maximum size of the development of the uterus at 35 weeks observed the highest location of the uterus.
In this regard, the woman says that she was breathing heavily panting - what's wrong? , perform normal work or load previously.This state is facilitated after 36-37 weeks, when the presenting part of the fetus (eg, head) falls to the field entrance to the pelvis and then it will be easier to breathe.It is recommended that after 31 weeks of wearing a supportive antenatal bandage.This will facilitate uniform distribution of the load on the spine, supporting the abdominal wall and will favorably affect posture.
term birth is gradually approaching, they come in a period 38-40 weeks.For pregnant women, the last few weeks are the most exciting, because as soon as the light of the long-awaited baby to be born.During this period, the woman should be very carefully monitor their condition, in order not to miss the late rupture of membranes or of a regular labor (the appearance of uterine contractions at regular time intervals).
